Supreme Court Gets One Right

The Supreme Court today threw out the ill-advised appeals court decision that would have required disclosure of detainee abuse photos. The administration was actually on the right side of this issue, arguing that "they could whip up anti-American sentiment overseas and endanger U.S. troops." You might think that would be so obvious that it wouldn't be necessary to take such a case all the way to the Supreme Court. After all, even the Obama administration recognizes that it would be a really bad idea.

But terrorist rights supporters have demonstrated repeatedly that they don't particularly care about much other than advancing their radical interpretation of "rights." It's nice to see the Supreme Court hand them a defeat, while at the same time preventing a bonanza of free enemy propaganda.
